Help!! What is this plant?!

Hello everyone. Could anybody identify this plant for me please? Seems trailing or climbing in nature, red leaves, was growing on the edge of my lawn and I’ve moved it adjacent to a fence for support. Little droopy after moving but recovering.

    It's drooping quite a bit so a bit hard to know. From some of the leaves on the bottom picture, I think it might be a Goat Willow, Salix Caprea. But not really sure as you mention climbing and trailing. Let's see what others think.

    I agree with @Borderline ... Salix caprea ... they pop op all over the place because their seeds drift on the air like thistledown ... not really suitable for a ’normal’ garden aa they grow huge and spread. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
